Copper Plating

Providing a soft, reddish, pliable surface

Copper plating is one of the most common metal finishes. It provides a soft, reddish, pliable surface with excellent electrical conductivity. It is most commonly used as an undercoat and can be easily buffed to a high sheen. Usually, copper is not used as a final finish due to its low resistance to tarnishing. As an undercoat, the process often includes two steps, a very thin copper strike (less than 0.0001 inches of thickness) providing excellent coverage followed by a second copper plating solution designed to give greater thickness.

What Our Clients Say

  • Rita Keep
    Just to let you know that the flange arrived on Saturday and is absolutely beautiful. I don't think it was as good when it was new!  We're delighted with the result especially as this particular item is no longer available and my husband has grown very fond of it over the last 10 years! Thank you very much indeed.  I will certainly recommend your company to anyone who is looking for something like this.

    Am in the process of restoring a MK2 Jaguar to concourse condition. I was so impressed with Bishop - Classic Car Chroming - not only with the prompt service, but primarily, to the high degree of finish – irrespective of whether the part was large or small – all the workforce should be congratulated and praised for their dedication and professionalism. Many thanks Bishop and to all those involved. As “Arnold” once said; “I will be back”!

    Dean, Val and all staff at Douglas Goods arrived lunchtime on 4 June, as promised.  We are thrilled with the transformation of the bathroom accessories and certainly, before we came to your premises, did we think that these items which are well over 20 years old, could be made to look brand new.  We would like to say many thanks to you all for the work done and the courtesy, friendliness and efficiency of your company - which is a rare thing these days. We shall have no hesitation in recommending Douglas to anyone who needs similar work done.
